Spring Stuff

Spring is really happening here! The swallows came back and are busy revamping the nest in Janow's stall. This is the 4th or 5th year for that nest and it's getting to be pretty big. They add to it every year.

I have seen a few kildeer running around, but haven't seen a nest yet. Usually, now that there are so many people at Indian Hill, someone will put a cone by the nest to protect it. Kildeer build thier nest of pebbles on the ground.

The turkeys are in full mating display. Their wattles have turned bright red and blue and their feathers have an iridescent sheen.

Monday I saw two jack rabbits playing/flirting around the trailers. Of course, I didn't have my camera with me on ANY of these sightings!

Tomorrow I go back to the Dr. for my foot. It's really been giving me a hard time and I can barley walk around. The less I walk, the better I feel, but it's really hard. Grocery shopping, laundry, cooking, and just being around the house. There's always something.

I went to the hardware store sale and got basil plants for Silver Rabbit. I had already planted one parsley and one cilantro for her, and one mint(in a pot!) It is obvious that her consumption will ooutpace the growth of these few plants, so I got more than on basil and a few more parsley plants. I wanted to take a picture but yesterday was rainy.

Janow went to the park with Jay on Monday and came back all sweaty. Jay reported a good ride without spooking and only one of those Lipizzan airborn things. He goes again today. Janow is doing a lot better since I had Phil the horseshoer put pads back on in front.

Hoping the foot Dr. has all the right remedies/answers for you! Darn, sorry to hear of this.
Nice to have help with Janow..only one Lipizzaner jump huh?!
HAHA, that made me laugh!

Laughing Orca Ranch said... it's your foot that's causing your problems. Now I just have to go back more and find out why. I hope it does heal soon, though.

Funny about Janow and his airborn thingies. hehe!

And what a good bunny Mom you are growing a garden just for Silver.
